#WEverb11 #1: One Word

Ok, so second post for the day, what you say?  Yes, I'm going to do my best to participate in #WEverb11 this year!  I've never done anything like this, so you may have to bear with me!

 Choose one word.

Encapsulate the year 2011 in one word. Explain why. Imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2012 for you?

In the spirit of where this all started… this is the same first prompt from 2010.

For me the word that best explains 2011 is blessed.

This year we were blessed with so many things, the biggest being a happy, healthy, baby boy.  We've had such a great year.  Everyone is happy and healthy.  We've been able to see family and friends (at home and traveling).  We have jobs, we have a home, and we have amazing people around us.  We've laughed, we've cried and most of all we've made it through with very few scrapes, bumps, or bruises.  We've watched our little boy change so much over the last 6months, it's incredible.  2011 was such a blessing!

The word I think I would like to capture 2012, is accomplished.  We have some financial goals that we'd like to accomplish sooner rather than later.  I also have some career goals/changes/advancements that I'd like to accomplish as well.  Oh and I'd say surviving the first year of Alex's life will be a huge accomplishment (while solely breastfeeding would make it even better)!
